Sponsored Programs

Research and Economic Development (RED), through its Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) unit, is UCR's institutional office responsible for reviewing, endorsing and submitting proposals to extramural sponsors for research, training, instructional and other activities.


Research Development

Strategies to help new faculty get off to a successful

Technology Commercialization

The Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) at the University of California at Riverside (UCR) facilitates the development, protection and commercialization of UCR's campus research and intellectual property.

Research Integrity

Campus Veterinarian

The UC Riverside Office of Campus Veterinarian (OCV) oversees all animal facilities at the University of California, Riverside (UCR).




Research and Economic Development has established a pilot program to stimulate and encourage UCR's participation in the U.S. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, as well as increase interactions with promising small business concerns (SBCs) interested in advancing innovative technology of mutual interest. Through this pilot program, UCR will waive all facilities and administrative (F&A) cost on all UCR subcontract proposals to SBCs applying for either SBIR or STTR Phase 1 funding.

The pilot program is effective immediately and will continue through June 30, 2015, at which time the program will be evaluated to determine if it will continue. It is important to note that this pilot program does not apply to SBIR or STTR Phase II funding, which will continue to be subject to UCR's standard applicable research F&A cost rate.
